Story

Since the Tanoa is rich in natural resources, an official government in the year 2028 gives a decree to research territorial waters around the archipelago. Shortly after that, a head of research group "Enclave" found an oil field near the Tanoan International Airport. Building of first offshore oil platform on Tanoa was started. A platform was named "E-77". It was built really fast in the year 2029, because of enthusiasm of Tanoan workers. Since then, Tanoan economy grew up fast.
But it couldn't last forever. In 2035, Tanoa was struck with critical flooding. The story of oil rig E-77 has ended.

Structure

E-77 is a tension-leg platform. It's a vertically moored floating structure. Main platform has 2 sections. The top section is used mainly for living purposes of staff of the platform. There is also a warehouse and big radio tower. Main platform is connected to a secondary platform, which has 3 sections. The top one is used as a helicopter LZ. You can get on a platform through it. Also, there is an pier on a main platform to get on it by ship.
You can move through platforms and sections by using bridges and stairs.

Usage

To use it in your mission just subscribe to it and then launch it from Multiplayer (Multiplayer > Server Browser > Host Server > Host Server > Tanoa > Oil Rig E-77). You will download it. After it, you will be able to unpack the pbo of the mission (mission.pbo) in your profile folder. It is located in here:
C:\YourUsername\YourUsername\Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles\YourUsername\Saved\steamMPMission\Oil%20Rig%20E-77.tanoa
Use PBO manager (http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=16369) or something else to unPBO mission file.
After it, you can take mission.sqm file from there. Place it in a mission folder as your own mission in folders like "mpmissions" and "missions". They're located in your profile folder (C:\YourUsername\YourUsername\Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles\YourUsername). From now on, add this one to your mission.

It will be good, if you will mention author's name in your scenario.

Dependency

You need Apex DLC to run this.

Sadly, there's no way to create vanilla version without Apex (atm). It consists of Apex objects by 99%.

Is the rig somehow available as a standalone outside the mission you've created? Because it's awesome, and I'd love to do other stuff with it.

Ok, thanks for the info. I'm going to try it out anyway, it looks really cool!

@Streblo88 Not good I think. Use BIS_fnc_UnitCapture instead

How is the AI pathfinding on the rig? If I wanted to make a hostage rescue mission for example are AI hostages going to be able to follow me to the helipad? Cheers.

@chickendoose Ty. Btw, ArmA limitations are not letting me to create a better things. I sure will fix something or add, but do not expect completely new refined oil rig
chickendoose Jan 17 @ 1:59pm 
Its a great start, but there are some areas that need to be refined (weird clipping issues and the like.)

- Going up to the helicopter pad, one of the stairways is blocked by support pillars.
- Phantom set of stairs through a wall on the main platform.
- Agriculture chute used as a bridge the the helicopter platform??

It would be an awesome setting for a specop scenario! Awesome work!
